Atomic Blonde Review: Dir. David Leitch (2017)

Atomic Blonde review: Charlize Theron channels her inner John Wick in this eighties-set spy action-thriller.

Atomic Blonde review by Kat Hughes.

Atomic Blonde review

Director David Leitch has been in the movie industry for years. He started life as a stunt double, most notably working on The Matrix films, before venturing into directing with stunt-mate Chad Stahelski. The duo’s first project, John Wick, took the world by storm. What on paper should have been a terrible Dtv, was actually an inventive an incredible tour-de-force. Now Leitch ventures out on his own with Atomic Blonde.

Atomic Blonde sees Charlize Theron take centre stage in an eighties-set tale of Cold War spies. Theron plays Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent, tasked with retrieving an important list from Berlin during the fall of the Berlin Wall. Upon arrival, she partners with David Percival (played by James McAvoy), an embedded station chief, to navigate

Kill’em All is the latest action flick from one of the masters of the genre, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and sees the arse-kicking star appear alongside his son Kris Van Damme (who’s finally taken his father’s acting surname, having previously acted as Kristopher Van Varenberg), the always-awesome Peter Stomare, Predator 2‘s Maria Conchita Alonso and, Daniel Bernhardt who, fact fans, took over the Bloodsport franchise – begun by Van Damme in 1988 – appearing in three sequels, the last of which bowed in 1999.

Movie Review – Logan (2017)

Logan, 2017

Directed by James Mangold

Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Daniel Bernhardt and Elise Neal.

Synopsis:

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

The superhero movie has surely been sliced and diced every which way, from gleefully self-referential (Scott Pilgrim; Kick-Ass) to toweringly sober (Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy) to high camp and, erm, rubbery (surely the only time Batman and Robin deserves to mentioned in the same sentence as the aforementioned movies). Eking out a singular and distinct approach is becoming more and more tough, so nothing but plaudits ought to be aimed at the conceptually ambitious,

Second Opinion – Logan (2017)

Logan, 2017.

Directed by James Mangold.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Daniel Bernhardt and Elise Neal.

Synopsis:

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

A righteous ferocity flows through Hugh Jackman’s apparent swan song as the clawed superhero he’s made his own over the last two decades. James Mangold’s Logan gamely bats away most of the genre’s perceived narrative mold and “fatigue”, jettisoning a previously de-clawed, 12A-rated Wolverine in favour of a full-fat, crimson-soaked final outing for the iconic mutant.

Unlike so many movies unfurling in the shadow of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight saga,

That’s probably not the quote word for word, but as Donald Pierce (head of security for a research facility up to no good and a southern drawl speaking cyborg leader played by Boyd Holbrook of Narcos rising fame) and his army of mercenaries physically have their way with Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman reprising the role possibly for one last rodeo) beating the crap out of him,

For Your Consideration: Paul Drechsler-Martell Breeds Hitman Origin Tale In New Fan Film, John Wick Origins: Kirill

Keanu Reeves sequel starrer John Wick: Chapter Two is nearing $100 million dollars at the box office following its release last week. The rollout continues this weekend in more territories including the U.K., which is still otherwise perfect timing to invest in some independently-produced film fandom to bide the time. As of last week, filmmaker and stuntman Paul Drechsler-Martell did exactly that with the release of his latest inspired short, John Wick Origins: Kirill. Stuntman and action actor Matt Healey leads in the title role inspired by Daniel Bernhardt's character opposite Reeves in the hit 2014 film that started it all with helmer Stahelski pairing with 87eleven fellow David Leitch at the time. The title itself is a head-turner and one that would instantly draw...

In preparation for ‘Chapter Two’ here’s our A-z of ‘John Wick’

Ahead of Chapter Two, here’s our A-z of the world of John Wick.

John Wick: Chapter 2 arrives in UK cinemas on February 17th 2017. The film is a sequel to 2014’s John Wick, the film that re-established Keanu Reeves as an A-List action star. The story told of a retired hit-man who found himself back in the seedy criminal world after his beloved dog, a gift from his deceased wife, was murdered. The film is all kinds of brilliant, perfectly blending various elements to create a real-life graphic novel.

But in case you’re a little rusty on the world of Wick we’ve compiled this handy A – Z guide.

A is for Assassins

For those not acquainted with the world of John Wick, it’s all about the underworld of hit-men and hit-women. The most decorated of these is John Wick (Keanu Reeves), a hit-man who managed to

Movie Review – Precious Cargo (2016)

Precious Cargo, 2016.

Directed by Max Adams.

Starring Bruce Willis, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Claire Forlani, Jenna B. Kelly and Daniel Bernhardt.

Synopsis:

Skilled thief Jack, on the verge of leaving his criminal world behind, is drawn by pregnant ex-lover Karen into a battle against vicious crime boss Eddie, who wants her dead…

If there was one question ringing through my mind by the end of Precious Cargo, it was this: when is Bruce Willis going to fire his agent? That’s perhaps a tad harsh on Max Adams’ debut feature as both writer and director, as it’s not quite as bad as some of the dross Brucey has lowered himself to over the last few years, but equally this action movie isn’t nearly as thrilling, exciting or knockabout as it professes to be. For a start, while it trades off Willis’ mega star wattage, Adams’ film probably only has about

Precious Cargo review: “A brave but uneventful romp…”

Precious Cargo review: Zack Morris and John McClane together at last in this direct-to-dvd film that has snuck into cinemas. Precious Cargo review

Bruce Willis! How do you feel about that name? It’s one that has changed its meaning and sound throughout the years. From sitcom star to unexpected action hero, to taking on challenging prestige roles in the late 90s, Willis hasn’t exactly become stale. Recently however he has given his name to small budget action films, showed up, read his lines, and seen them go straight to DVD or streaming. This isn’t surprising however as the movie star as we know it is pretty much dead. Willis still impresses when he gets into original and challenging material such as Moonrise Kingdom, or Looper, but why not earn a buck on the side?

Precious Cargo isn’t exactly the dream outing anybody was waiting for. Mark-Paul Gosselaar,

Bruce Willis Hunts Down Precious Cargo In First Trailer For Heist Drama

From The Prince to Rock the Kasbah and (almost) everything in between, the past few years haven’t been kind to Bruce Willis’ track record, and today’s debut trailer for by-the-numbers heist drama Precious Cargo isn’t the reverse of fortune we secretly hoped it would be.

Headlining Max Adams’ actioner as Eddie, a merciless crime boss with a chip on his shoulder, Willis switches gears to play the big bad in Precious Cargo, luring Mark-Paul Gosselaar of Saved By the Bell fame into a daring escapade in order to secure a bounty of priceless gems.

Part hostage drama, part heist thriller, and all very familiar, Precious Cargo simply screams straight-to-dvd, and without Bruce Willis’ name on the masthead we find it difficult to imagine Adams’ generic feature would secure a theatrical release.

Nevertheless, it’s on course for mid-April, and the official synopsis is as follows:

With the upcoming action flick "Precious Cargo," we are witnessing one of two things: either the continual slide of Bruce Willis into movies that would be straight-to-dvd if his name wasn't Bruce Willis, or, the career resurrection of "Saved By The Bell" star Mark-Paul Gosselaar (who last year, had a role in "Heist," a movie starring Robert De Niro that would have been straight-to-dvd if it didn't have Robert De Niro in it).

Keanu Reeves has, in recent years, seemingly been making headway in to the action genre with films like 47 Ronin and Man of Tai Chi.Gone are the days of Keanu the funny mam, Keanu the heartthrob leading man love-interest and in has come a stone-faced bearded bad-ass. Yet, whilst both the aformentioned films have there fans – me included – neither really set the genre alight. However all that changes with John Wick – a return to the R-rated, arse-kickery of the genres heyday, that isn’t afraid to get bone-crunchily violent and bullet-riddled with blood…

John Wick features Keanu Reeves in the titular role – a hitman who left the business five years ago after finding the love of a good woman.

John Wick directors in development on a sequel

After a couple of subpart efforts in 47 Ronin and Man of Tai Chi, Keanu Reeves kickstarted his comeback over the holiday season with the release of the critically acclaimed action thriller John Wick, and it seems that directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are already working on a follow-up, with the duo revealing to Movies.com that they’re in the early stages of development now on John Wick 2.

“We’re in development right now,” states Stahelski. “If we could work with Keanu Reeves for 10 movies you’d have a really cool career. We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original. It’s the matter of story and how much you like the character. That’s always the most important. If there’s great action but you have a character that no one likes and doesn’t have charisma
